Another Finished Project





Well, let's see what our friend Blogger does with these photos. I think they are pretty self-explanatory, since no one will confuse the two pictures of my finished black-and-white shawl with either the pretty rose (a David Austin variety called Sceptered Isle) or my poor busted-up driveway. This ruin is the result of a 150-year-old oak tree falling over in Jan. 2005, after all the rain. Needless to say, the driveway had been undermined by the rain as well, and the heavy truck plus many trips with a heavily-loaded bobcat took their toll. Monday is now set for the date to rip this all out and replace it with a nice new concrete driveway. We'll see how it goes. I am of course now having second and third and fourth thoughts about the whole project.

The shawl looks great and the rose is lovely. Good luck with your new driveway!

Congratulations! I can't believe that you are so into the WIP and finishing these. Wow, I am impressed beyond words. You are an ispiration to me. To that end, I spent all day trying to put together Geese. What a job. Doesn't look very good and I am hoping blocking does a lot for this one.

I love the black and gray shawl. What yarn did you use? Looks tweedy. Luck on the new cement.

Good luck with the driveway - sounds like a pain!

I still think the shawl is gorgeous, and I'm sure the recipient loved (will love? whichever is right) it. Every once in awhile I'm glad to be in an apartment, where I don't have to deal with repairs and things. Not often, but now and then ;-)
